Dolphins paranoia rears its paranoid head

There's an old adage about how quickly football teams adjust, or should adjust, to the strategy of their opponents: High School teams adjust next game. College teams adjust next half. NFL teams adjust next series.

The Dolphins are adjusting.

Intrepid Miami Herald reporter/columnist David J. Neal has been staking out the Dolphins facility since the start of the current coaching search from an adjacent parking lot overlooking the team's practice facility. That vantage point got you the pictures of yesterday's Jeff FIsher arrival and departure on the helicopter. And we also learned that Steve Ross, Jeff Ireland and Carl Peterson accompanied Fisher when he left because we saw it.

Well, this morning, the Dolphins ordered the security guards at Nova University, which maintains the garage, to remove the media from the garage.

I don't know if the Fins are upset people are making jokes about the helicopter, or the fact we're seeing who is involved in the daily activity of the coach interviews, or the fact they're just plain paranoid. I remember once upon a time this organization made general manager candidates interviewing for the job available to speak to the media -- and the team was a playoff team at the time.

Whatever the problem, the Iron Curtain has descended around the Dolphins practice facility. Winston Churchill would be sick about this.

Now it's up to the media to adjust in an effort to bring you the most accurate informaton possible. Clue on how quickly we'll adjust: The Miami Herald doesn't hire people in high school or college.

aaaaw yeah

Draft picks are a dime a dozen. How many top pks dont work out? Lots. Give Indy want they want for #1 pick this yr. Theres free agencys, and free agents. Give Indy 3 #1 draft pks. What would you have given for Marino, knowing what u know now? As many as you could give, thats what. Defenses are not allowed to actually defend in the NFL. Two good WRs and TE and Luck will rule the air.
Go for it,,,,,,,,,,,

Cue the circus music.


I usually like your column, but this is ridiculous. Why can't we wait for the Dolphins to go through the process and make an announcement? Does it really BLEEPING matter we know a few hours before the world? All the media have turned into entertainment whores. Go back to real journalism, not gossip and entertainment. Speculation is a disease.

Ross actually makes us miss Huizenga.
